oh my God i'm in big trouble.

I have choosen Canon S2 IS and retailed price of 540 EUR.

But there is no Camera on stocks to buy.

Now, as a supstitute they offered me Canon pro 1, Fuji S7000, Nikon 8700 or 8400 or 4800 but the best of them are too expensive with prices over 765 EUR.

Fuji S7000 is with lowest price but I think the quality is not good as S2 IS Canon and the only lower price of Nikon is 4800 but the quality even lower than Fuji S7000. That is mu oppinion.

What is your suggestion.

i'd stick with the S2. i've seen lots of sample images from the Pro1 and i don't think they justify the price difference.

I would wait for the S2 to come back in stock or find someplace that has it. Did they give you a date when I might be available?

You want stabilization with a long zoom lens. The alternatives I see to the S2 are the Panasonic FZ5, FZ15 and FZ20. The latter two are a little large. There is also the Sony H1. I think several of those are in the price range of the S2, and they all got good reviews.

thanks for reply............ but in my head is total eclipse.

Please give me a real oppinion. I can not pay more than 700 eur.

among canon s2=540 euris which seams to be the best choice what about the following:

1.fuji s2 pro=660 eur

2. canon eos 300 D = 700 eur

3. fuji 7000 = 450 eur

or suggest me something because i do not know anymore. Give me your top 3 favourate ones but i will buy only one which are no less than 5 Mpx and no less than 6 optic zoom. I'm not sure about the prices-thay are maybe wrong.

are there a differences in Mpx between SRL models (canon eos 300d = 3.2 Mpx) and i do not find optic zoom information. Maybe i dont understand something........reply me

if you have to ask that question about digital slrs.. then one is not right for you..

stick with the digicams.. here are a few competitors of the s2 is that could fit your bill well..

Sony cybershot dsc-h1 - 5mp 12x zoom with image stabilization

Panasonic Lumix Fz-5 - 5mp 12x zoom with image stabilization

those would be the only ones that i think of substituting for the s2 is..
